Birthday Card ~ Split Sentiment {3rd Post}

I've seen this technique done using die cuts
and thought it would be fun with the 'HAPPY' stamp
from my Avery Elle set.
I cut the sentiment in half  then added the birthday to the center.
I don't have the cute dies you can get to go with
the set yet that replace the missing 'A' so
I dug through my stamp stash and found these.
I added them to the embossed background and
finished it off with some chunky glitter and sequins.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Sentiment from the Fill In the Blank stamp set from Avery Elle.
*Bird and hat from stamp sets in my stash. {brands unknown}
*Embossed using Cuttlebug Number Collage folder.
*Sequins from Joanns.
*Glitter from Recollections.
*Copic markers Y21, G05 and B23.
*CTMH stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
